Energy, a major area for economic development in the Valais

The Valais canton generates almost 30% of the hydro-electric power produced in Switzerland and therefore has proven expertise in this field. It was therefore logical for the public authorities in the Valais to make energy one of the major aspects of their economic development policy.

The Ark Foundation draws a network of academic and industrial expertise in order to consolidate economic development within engineering sciences, especially in the area of:

  • renewable energy
  • energy efficiency within businesses
  • smart grid
